When it comes to wedding fashion, it’s easy to get carried away and want to incorporate a bit of everything into your overall look. However, sometimes less really is more – as today’s couture fashion shoot proves.

The beautiful, bespoke Jenny Lessin dresses really do speak for themselves – especially when they’re pared with the elegant, fine art style of photography adopted by Katy & Co Photography. Think Grace Kelly meets modern day minimalism…

Jenny Lessin and I have known each other professionally for a few years and are building up a portfolio of joint projects. She approached me to photograph two of her latest and most creative couture dresses. The first one a stunning silk zibeline wedding gown with gold embroidery. The second a dramatic wool crepe shift shown at L’Aiguille en fetes in Paris. Both dresses were embroidered by James Hunting.

We were both looking to create a natural, elegant, fine art style of image with the clothing being the ‘star’ of the shoot. Our inspiration was the photography of 1950’s couture with a modern edge. The model, Julie was perfect for this, we loved her edgy, yet classic look. Lisa our MUA worked with Julie to accentuate her natural beauty which brought all the elements together. 

For the photography I used a combination of flash and natural daylight. Some photos I wanted to create a more dramatic look whilst others softer and more natural. We decided to shoot in Jenny’s home, as the victorian features complimented the style of the shoot. High ceilings, neutral pastel tones and uncluttered space worked to make this strong simple look.
